I am considering upgrading my pc, Pentium 4 dual core 3GHz, 2GB DDR
ram to something a bit faster.If I do upgrade I have pretty well
decided on an AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition and an Asus
MSA78L/USB3 mobo. Another requirement is to increase the amount of
RAM. My mobo at the moment, ASRock P4VM890 will only accept up to 2GB
DDR, and I would like to go to 4GB DDR3 since I have started doing
some video editing.
I have been looking at RAM in XP and have found various reports that
XP 32Bit will only handle 2Gb, 3Gb, 4Gb depending where you look.
Can anyone shed light on this? Would XP Pro 32Bit handle 4 GB RAM with
the above processor and mobo. I do not want to switch to Windows 7
because I prefer XP and some software that I use will not run on Win7.
